Questions for Gwen Jorgensen Interview / 24hr Training Video
Quote | Reply
Hello ST,

I don't know if many of you guys remember my videos from Kona. I followed a few professional athletes for 24 hours as they prepped for the big dance. This weekend I will be heading out to Portland to do a 24 Hours with Gwen Jorgensen. The video title is going to be "Why Marathon".

I am posting on here to ask what you guys would like to see. Reply below what you would like to see also some questions you would like for her to answer.

If you have not seen any of the Kona videos here is a link to the playlist. CLICK HERE https://www.youtube.com/...4BF-hu1piuG_VlIqyESh

Thanks ahead of time! I will keep you guys up to date when the video goes live.

Honestly, I hope she gets destroyed in distance running so she goes back to the sport she is actually world class in...

Eh I think the problem is she understands what it takes to being world class in triathlon and STAYING world class in triathlon. It *seems* she doesn't want that training/travel lifestyle. What she's done is actually cash in on her gold medal to pretty much fund training for another olympic cycle in a sport that is a high probability she doesnt even make the marathon team.


It would shock me if she came back to itu.

I’d like to hear about a potential race schedule. Marathons beat up your body, so she obviously won’t race the full distance often, will she race a lot of 10k’s or 5k’s? Or just keep the schedule light, as far as racing goes, in order to stay close to home and family to keep the mind & emotions strong. I’d say the latter will have the best results...

I’d be curious to hear how her training has progressed and what a typical run week looks like now compared to a few months ago.

What is her 2018 race schedule
What is her goal time this year
Does she still bike and swim
What's her backup plan if the marathon thing doesn't work out

When is the last time she was in a pool / on a bike? Does she miss either (assuming she isn’t doing them)...

I would really be interested in a deeper question of how is she feeling? She just had a baby; she left ITU which really made her her money; she relocated to Portland; and she is in a "new" sport, trying to go up against the likes of someone like Hasay. I feel like she has to have those "oh shit" moments and maybe get those feelings that she can't cut it.

Babies take a toll, emotionally and hormonally, and you are on their schedule. Compared to some others, does she feel this puts her at a slight disadvantage in terms of fatigue and ability to put in proper training time. I'm not implying that babies are negative, as I have two :)

I asked her that on Instagram. She actually replied and said she really just misses competing!

I saw on Twitter that she recently had a 100 mile week - what is the breakdown in terms of workouts that comprise her week. Mostly easy miles with two or so harder workouts, plus a longer run? How's the body handling the higher mileage?

A lot of people can pretty easily run 50-60 miles a week without any sort of injuries (I assume this is the kind of mileage she was doing while racing ITU), but jumping to 100+ is much more of a demand on the body.

Does she fuel differently now that she is a runner rather than a triathlete?

a Runner's World article on Shalane mentions that Gwen is training with her, so possibly Jerry Schumaker as coach ?

Wasn't her husband, Pat, her coach when she did triathlon? Or maybe I heard this wrong. . . Either way I was curious if he was doing it until she became attached. He always seems to have her food on lock.

No clue!
I assumed all the quick ones were under Salazar.

Who does she see winning Olympic medals in Tokyo, men and womens?

Does she have any desire whatsoever to do Kona one day?
